I have been working on making a program (jekyll-helper) using Quickly and a while ago I worked on adding some content to the default help pages. I tested out open the help pages in the program while running the program through the
quickly run command, and the help pages worked fine.
However, when I made a package for the program using the
quickly package command, installed the package, and ran the installed version of the program the help pages would not work properly. Whenever I would open the help pages via the menu option
Help > Contents, the following error would pop up in place of the help pages:
Document Not Found
The URI ‘ghelp:jekyll-helper’ does not point to a valid page.
Unfortunately I do not know when the issue began, as I only realized that the issue existed when I ran the installed version of the program, which was a bit of time after I had finished working on the help pages.
I did some Google searching and found a few similar issues that people had, however none of them had the same exact issue as I had.
I found this question on Ask Ubuntu that seemed to be related, Problems compiling with Quickly. That person had a similar issue, and they were able to get an error message related to the issue by running
quickly package --verbose --extras. So I tried running that command and the package was able to build, however I got several error messages. I put up a copy of the terminal output here: http://pastie.org/10214514.
The person who wrote that issue figured out that it was caused by a new line being in the long description on the program. However, I checked my program's information in the
DistUtilsExtra.auto.setup section of the
setup.py file and there was no newline in the long description. Also their error message was somewhat different from the corresponding one I got. Thus the issue I am having did not likely have the same cause as the other person's issue.
I also found this somewhat related issue, Quickly gives warnings on packageing, not recognizing setup.py~, however that issue appears to be somewhat different from the issue I have been having. Also that issue was caused by automatic backup files created by Gedit, however I am using Atom to edit the source, which is not making such backup files.
The source code of the program is here: https://github.com/ExcaliburZero/jekyll-helper
How can this problem be fixed, and what is causing it?
